No gripes/great truck

2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
So far no issues. One long haul over many passes and headwinds, the trans is killer compared to My old 97 Power Stroke there is nothing I miss about the old truck. Quiet &comfortable. This truck laughs at climbs and head wind. Mileage increased from 12.8 to 16.1 driving to work after the towing workout. Continental tires wear is not good. Ford needs to work on that part. 18 inchers are not cheap. Re-gen has been occuring at a pretty steady 350 mile interval. Most of my driving is highway. with little stop and go driving. WE are very happy with the truck. this is Ford Diesel #3 for us.
Interior/Power/Trans/ride while towing
Better tire slection for improved wear/Oil dipstick tends to be hard to read/A small toe guard on intercooler/It can be easily kicked and damaged changing the filters. battery terminal connections are pretty cheesy. Splash guards in the rear wheel wells.
